Boot Watch #013 | Very Many Very Interesting Boots

Welcome to Boot Watch #012. This week's football boots world was not very boring as Nike released seven signature Nike Tiempo Legend Boots. However, we still think that there can't be enough boots. So we yet again included as many interesting boots in this week's Boots Watch as possible for us - ranging from utterly classy custom boots to an all-new boot silo.



Blaise Matuidi - Nike Magista Obra BHM


Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi finally debuted the stunning Nike Magista Obra Black History Month Boots in the Champions League clash against Chelsea last week.

Thomas Müller - Adidas X Skeleton


FC Bayern Munich striker Thomas Müller already showed off his black boots more than one week ago.

Hulk - Mizuno Morelia Neo Origami Concept


Zenit superstar Hulk laced up in the ultra-classy Mizuno Morelia Neo Origami Concept Soccer Cleats in this week's Champions League clash against Benfica.
